Yahoo buys HotJobs
$436 million deal.

 11:25 am on Jan 3, 2002 (gmt 0)

[onrec.com...] - originally from reuters but couldn't find that one.

A bit of background - hotjobs.com is the 2nd largest jobsite globally. Monster being the largest. Until a few days ago Monster was in line to purchase HotJobs amalgamating the two largest recruitement sites. But then Yahoo! stepped in with a larger bid.

No doubt Yahoo moved to recurring $300 fees to finance this :)

Interesting quote from the article:

Analysts hailed the Yahoo-HotJobs tie-up, saying the acquisition is a key step in Yahoo's move toward more fee-based services and away from a reliance on advertising revenue, which has stagnated this year amid the economic slowdown.

So could this be the start of a Yahoo! spending spree, looking to tie in their vast user base with more fee based services?
